I looked several cases and decided on this one, simply because of the nice design and price. Sure, there are some very high prices cases that are extremely stylish, but this Targus one serves the purpose of protecting my MacBook Air when it's just lying around the house, or when I want to take my Air with me without using the larger carrying bag. I always wanted a side pocket for one or two peripherals, and this one works fine. It's about in inch larger than my 11" Air, but I didn't want a tight fitting case that would make it difficult to put netbook in and take out.
Quick review. Nice slipcase. Looks good and fits the Acer 1410 very nicely. You can even tuck the power cords for the Acer in the zippered pocket if you don't mind a little buldge. Don't recall any funny neoprene smells with it. I use this when I want to throw my Acer 1410 in a backpack, and it keeps it protected. I also bought a Targus Citygear Atlanta Messenger which is a perfect fit for carrying the 1410, charge cables, portable usb drive, etc.. That is my main bag, and it also looks great.
I bought this sleeve for the Dell D430. It fits perfectly. It is thick enough to protect the hardware. There is a layer of protection underneath the zipper too, so that the zipper doesn't scratch inside. I bought the black with black color combination. It looks good, even if you look at details like stitching etc.
Purchased for an HP DM1Z 11.6 laptop. Fits easily with a little room. Front zip pocket hold mouse easily. Front will hold charger and cord with a little effort. I wanted sleeve to prevent scuffs to laptop and carry mouse; for that it is perfect.
I use this Targus netbook case for my Acer Aspire one 11.6' netbook and I have had no problems. The case is roomy enough for the netbook and a few accessories. Note that the pocket is not the full width of the case so while I keep my mouse and other small accessories in it I keep the power cord and adapter separate.
This is a great protection case for my netbook. It is a quality soft neoprene that really keeps it cushioned well when transporting it back and forth to school and other places. It also looks pretty stylish, and the zipper pouch in the front is great to carry my laptop mouse in.
Great look, excellent product quality, and killer price makes this a definite recommended buy!
I was looking for a sleeve to protect my new ASUS netbook. Not only was this a perfect fit (without being too large) it has a zippered pocket where I can put my plug and external dvd writer. Perfect for slipping it all into my purse for travel.
